Ralph Fiennes Up For “Bond 23” Role

Ralph Fiennes is said to be in discussions for a role in the next James Bond film reports The Daily Mail.

The source says the part is quite dark and “one of extreme complexity and only an actor of great ability and dexterity can take it on.” It’s also apparently NOT the same part that is being offered to Javier Bardem.

Fiennes apparently “excited by the revolutionary approach of the upcoming film… it’s the first of a new generation of Bond films, and the ideas [Director] Sam Mendes has push the film into darker territory where the characters are modern, mature and challenging” according to their sources.

Filming is currently scheduled to kick off in the Fall for a release in November next year.
